Are you kidding? Yes, it certainly is. Substandard work and poor ideas,
even if implemented with great vigor, usually prove to be more detrimental
Take dpkg, for instance. We don't let just anybody work on that code. It
is far too important to trust to just anybody. Ian Jackson was careful to
guard it against tampering by unqualified hands, and he was correct to do
Speaking of Ian, I miss his posts. He was arrogant as hell, but guess
what? He was almost always right.
